Well, friends, this is it. My last column for The Preface. After two years of writing an entertainment and culture column, it’s time to call it a wrap. My time as a columnist has introduced me to many interesting people and some pretty amazing topics.
I would like to thank those who have read the column over the past two years. I hope I brought you some useful information about local and national entertainment and cultural issues. My idea was to spread the word about how fun the world can be if you embrace different things.
Another thanks should be extended to the many local bands that have let me (poorly, at first) interview them. The heart of why I started to write this column is to support local music, which is a cause that is very close to my heart. I hope the articles that I’ve written about bands featured in The Preface have gained some kind of recognition or fandom in result. Keep doing what you’re doing.
With one year left of classes at IU South Bend, I still plan to bring entertainment and culture coverage to The Preface. The column has to come to an end for me, but I’m a news nerd and my eyes are glued to RollingStone.com‘s newsfeed and InTheBend.com is one of my browser favorites. I’ll be sure to let you guys know what’s going on.
Thanks for reading, even if you’ve only read a few columns. I have received numerous emails and Facebook messages from readers letting me know how they’ve connected with my column—thanks for that.
As always, be sure to keep reading and check out other columns featured in The Preface.
